About This Listing
This spacious cottage on Lake Joe has a boathouse and beautiful dock to lounge on and enjoy the deep clear water right off the dock. With 2 bedrooms, a cozy fireplace and living room, and two loft bedrooms, it makes a perfect getaway.
The cottage is on a point of land on Lake Joseph at the end of Roberts Bay Road. It gets beautiful sun exposure all day long on the boathouse, and has an amazing shaded screened porch on the whole side of the cottage when the sun is a bit too hot. The water is deep and clear, no weeds and beautiful for swimming. There are swings and chairs to lounge on on the dock. There are large rock steps into the water for those who would like wading depth of water.
Guests will have access to the entire cottage with the exception of the basement (storage area). There is also a large boathouse on the lake, guests will have access to the dock and waterfront area, as well as an outside covered boat slip if they wish to rent a boat. Another cottage nearby is also owned by the same family as this one, and they will be using the inside of the boathouse when they take a boat out, and may use the dock from time to time, but are very respectful of guests.
Interaction with Guests
We'll likely just pop by at some point and say hi and make sure you have everything you need.
Other Things to Note
There is lots of parking, and very easy access into the cottage. It is far off the main road, so a very free and comfortable area for kids to run around.
The family owns a cottage along another driveway and share the boathouse with this cottage - which is mostly used on weekends, and we make sure to be very accommodating to make sure guests get to have fun, but also have their own privacy.
Linens for beds are provided as well as bath/shower towels. Please bring your own dock/waterfront towels.
Hello we were a party of 7 people and enjoyed our stay. The cottage was clean, plenty of room for everybody. The dock at the lake was very nice 2 kyaks were fine, the canoe had some leaking problems.
We had some problems finding the place, suggest a more correct address and indications on how to get there.
We highly recommend this place, thank you Kathy and Jason
We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage. It is not luxurious but fully equipped with everything you need for 8 people and has a really cosy feeling to it. Dishes, sheets, towels, blankets, games, etc. It is not really large so good for families who are happy to share space and bathroom with each other. Even on the cold and rainy days we lit the fire, played games and felt very much at home. The hosts Kathy and Jeremy were very responsive to any requests for information. The cottage was fairly clean and tidy when we arrived. Thanks for a great stay.
The cottage waterfront is located in a quiet bay where the Lake Joseph water is deep and pristine. The sunny boathouse dock, complete with table and several chairs, is wonderful for hanging out and the kayaks and canoe available to the guests came in very handy. Our group enjoyed swimming and fishing for smallmouth bass off the dock.
The cottage itself is spacious with a well-equipped kitchen, a modern bathroom with shower and washer/dryer and 2 outdoor grills. The main floor dining area is surrounded by large windows on two sides, which kept the air moving; there is also a good ceiling fan. Our group consisted of 6 adults and 2 young children - one evening we were able to host an even larger group of guests for a dinner barbecue fairly comfortably - the large screen porch helped.
Port Carling is a short drive away and we visited several times to pick up provisions from Foodland (open 24 hours!) as well as Stephen's butcher shop and Field of Greens (both highly recommended).
Kathy was a great host and answered our questions patiently. The guest information sheet was especially helpful.
All in all a great choice if you are looking for a quiet, secluded spot for a larger group in a gorgeous setting perfect for swimming and relaxing.
We used Kathy's cottage for the long weekend. Everything was very easy, Kathy responded promptly to the booking enquiry & any questions I had. The cottage is in a beautiful location with everything you could possibly need. The screened in porch is amazing with gorgeous views. The dock has full sun all day & the lake is lovely to swim in. Everyone in the neighboring cottages were friendly as well. If you get a chance a trip into Port Carling is worth it, it's a nice little town. I would definitely recommend the cottage it's a perfect little getaway.
Kathy was very responsive and helped us book our first Muskoka experience. We had 3 couples traveling together and there was enough room for 6 adults. The cottage was on a beautiful lake and the dock area is great to hang out on. We spent a lot of time in the lake (it's clean and fresh) and loved the location. It was also close to stores, etc. so easy to pop out and get anything we left at home. During our visit, I reached out to Kathy and she got back to us right away.
In terms of Muskoka, this cottage seems like a great location. There was only one bathroom and it would have been nice to have 2 with 6 adults. There was a washer and dryer which was excellent! The cottage is a bit rustic (i.e. mismatched plates, older couches) which was fine for a weekend.
Our week at this cottage was nothing short of spectacular. This cottage boasts a very welcoming and warm invitation and we are very happy we chose to spend a week here. We had no problems at all picking our bedrooms as there was ample beds (about 4 queen sized beds & several singles and pull-outs).
The kitchen was equipped with the proper tools, dishware and appliances. There was a lovely screened in deck space off the living room with with lots of seating and tables where we enjoyed playing board games and hanging out. There is a small TV and DVD/VCR for watching movies.
Outside by the boat house, there were canoes & life jackets, as well as a bbq on the boat dock as well as a BBQ just outside the kitchen on the deck. There was a table we used to enjoy lunch right on the dock at the water's edge. The bay is very quiet and sort of tucked away.
Kathy & Jeremy were wonderful hosts. They were extremely kind, very accommodating and provided us immediate answers to our inquiries. Thank you so much... We hope to see you soon!
